'Riverdale' Season Four Lands On Netflix On October 10th And We're Excited
Queue the trumpets and fanfare as teen drama Riverdale is officially back on Netflix from Thursday, 10th October.
Season four of the beloved Archie Comic series landed on the streaming service hours after it first aired on The CW in the States on Wednesday night (9th October) and to say we're excited is an understatement.
The latest instalment of the teen series is sure to be an emotional one as it pays tribute to late actor Luke Perry, who died in March following a stroke aged 52.
In the wake of Luke's death, production on the series shutdown briefly while the cast and crew mourned Perry, who played Archie Andrews' dad Fred since the show began in 2017.
The episode, titled In Memoriam, follows Archie (KJ Apa), his pals; Betty Cooper, Veronica Lodge, Cheryl Blossom and Jughead Jones, as well as the town of Riverdale, coping with Fred's sudden passing
Aside from Fred's funeral, the final episode of season three left us on a major cliffhanger as Archie and the gang continued to delve deeper into The Farm and learned of Edgar Evernever's ploy to use the cult to harvest its followers' organs.
After Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) managed to escape the menacing group, thanks to her girlfriend Toni Topaz (Vanessa Morgan), she revealed Edgar's plan for the entire cult to "ascend".
Hoping to warn her mother Alice, Betty (Lili Reinhart) arrives too late and now the Cooper matriarch is missing.
But that's no where the story ended as Betty and Jughead (Cole Sprouse) were in for a major shock when their half-brother Charles, an FBI agent, showed up and said he was leading the missing person's case on Alice.

While Betty and Jug come to grips that their half-brother is alive and a federal agent, Archie is adjusting to life with his new boxing gym and knowing Veronica's father Hiram (Mark Consuelos) is behind bars.
But knowing Hiram, it won't stay like that for long. Especially, now that Veronica (Camila Mendes) has a half-sister, Hermosa, in town.
And while that all drama caused for a lot 'WTF?' moments in the season finale, it was the final scene which flashed forward to senior spring break, which saw a blood soaked Archie, Betty and Veronica throwing their clothes into a bonfire.
Promising to "never speak of this again", his throws Jughead's trademark beanie into the fire - but Jughead is nowhere to be found.
However, the actors have since cleared up the drama and explained that the real reason Jughead didn't appear in the shot was because TV star Cole was "cold".
We're not kidding.
During an interview with TVLine at the San Diego Comic Con, KJ revealed his co-star had been "too cold" to shoot that night.
The Kiwi actor admitted: "The only reason why the hat was [in the fire] was because Cole was cold that night".
While Lili chimed in: "It was scripted all four of us and he was like, 'I don't wanna do it,' so he didn't."
